Araujo Estate Eisele Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 (1500ml)

$1199

...revealing a quiet intensity of freshly crushed blackberries, chocolate-covered cherries, cassis and aniseed with compelling nuances of black tea, cigar box, truffles and charcuterie, plus, with coaxing, gentle wafts of red roses and crushed rocks emerge. The medium to full-bodied palate is simply arresting, offering a a myriad floral and earth sparks amidst a black fruit core and with seamless, firm, very fine-grained tannins. Well-knit freshness brings forth layer after layer of delicate nuances on the very long, mineral-laced finish. The team at Eisele, led by Frédéric Engerer (of Chateau Latour) and beautifully orchestrated by winemaker Hélène Mingot, have knocked it out of the park this vintage with this singular expression that both embraces the site's heritage and reveals parts unknown.

This may be perfect. Only reason its not a 10 is its a tad young but wow. Was skeptical of what Latour would do to this great site but they may have made it better. Napa fruit but with French restraint and complexity. Incredible.

Poor it in you’re glass and put it away for 30 minutes or so. Then let the full spectrum of flavours overwhelm you.
